Peter Davison confirms involvement in ‘Doctor Who’ 50th



Peter Davison, who portrayed the fifth incarnation of the Doctor on ‘Doctor Who’ from 1981 to 1984 has confirmed that he’ll be taking part in the 50th anniversary celebrations.

However when asked he refused to comment on whether or not he’d be part of the 75 minute special ‘The Day Of The Doctor’.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, Davison said: “I’m making an appearance somewhere over that period of time but I can’t reveal in what.

“I can’t reveal anything specific about it. I’m not allowed to. It is a big year for the show and we’re all doing our bit for it. Trust me.”

Davison was also somewhat controversial in saying that he feels that there will be a point where ‘Doctor Who’ will end because people will get fed up of it.

“There will get to a point where people get a bit tired of Doctor Who. I don’t know, maybe it will need a little rest. I’d love to see it carry on but you can never tell.”

When commenting about the choice of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor. Davison was extremely positive about the choice to go back to casting a more mature actor in the role.

“I grew up with mature Doctors so I think it’s an excellent choice.”

Davison went on to jokingly compare Doctor Who to “the North Korean dynasty”, as Tennant – who married Georgia Moffett – is Davison’s son-in-law.

“We’re just going to pass it on down the line until one of us pops our clogs. It’s all ours now – it’s the Davison and Tennant dynasty.”
